COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A brown porter that’d be a great beer on its own is even better with a subtle toasted coconut character that complements the dark grains wonderfully. A complex and exotic potion that’s an easy drinking, refreshing tropical elixir.

NachlamSie (3617) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 28, 2010
On tap at Smoky Oak. Pours pretty black. Aroma has coconut, wax chocolate and caramel. I’m not digging the flavor so much. Coconut is strong and combines with a waxy note to vividly remind me of soap. I feel like I’m drinking water from a bath in a spa. Other than that, it’s not too horrible in honesty.

iride15 (238) - Rockledge, Florida, Florida, USA - AUG 8, 2010
On tap, poured deep amber with a moderate tan head. Roasted malt aroma that hints coconut and caramel. Thinner bodied with a taste of toasted malts, cream, nuts, and mild hops. Follows more towards a brown ale instead of a porter. Great drink though, for any season.

3.4
redlight (2325) - Orlando, Florida, USA - AUG 7, 2010
draft @ redlight redlight. I just realized this is a separate listing from the original. Coconut and milk chocolate on the nose, with toasted almonds and maybe some hazelnut. Pours a very dark amber with a solid cream colored head. Smooth and nutty with hints of milk chocolate and very light coffee with just enough coconut to make it slightly sweet and smooth, finishes very dry though. Light and extremely session-able!

Ibrew2or3 (8989) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUL 14, 2010
On tap at the TampaPourHouse pouring up mahogany with thin tan head. The aroma is roasty to burnt malts, some mild muted dry coconut, caramel malts and a touch of toffee. The taste is similar with roasted malts, burnt malts, some sweet nuttiness and mild coconut. As it warms at the end of the taste the coconut grows to become more assertive.

dchmela (3089) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 21, 2010
Draft at Redlight. Reddish brown pour. Roasted grain, coconut hush, toffee aroma. Taste is roasted grain, toffee sweetness and some nuttiness. Lacks a little in the coconut department, but I think just having a hint blended well with the roastiness of the porter. I really like this as it was flavorful and sessionable.

Interesting porter... Light malt, hint of coconut milk and toasted graham. Very smooth--almost too smooth.

3.4
Teege (375) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 4, 2010
draft at redlight redlight. pours a dark translucent brown with some amber highlights, light tan head and ok lace. smells pretty nice with strong lightly roasted aromas (one could, i guess, say toasted). Not much coconut presence but it isn’t a very aromatic fruit so i let it slide. Where the coconut should be more present, in the flavor, it really only appears at all if you really use your imagination. While it has a good roasted, semi-sweet porter flavor, i was disappointed by the lack of coconut characteristics, which i was very much looking forward to and docked some points for that reason. fairly nice porter but not if your heart’s set on coconut.

3.1
glennmastrange (2948) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - APR 26, 2010
Tap. Moderate toasted and cookie for the malt, light resin for the hops, and moderate earth for the yeast. Head is small, creamy, off-white with some lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is clear reddish brown. Flavor starts slightly sweet, moderately acidic and a little sour, then finishes just acidic. Palate is light to medium, watery, with a lively carbonation and a slightly astringent finish. Nice and toasty, a good if not light Porter, just no coconut.

3.3
Beerlando (3343) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 12, 2010
Draft. The pour yields a clear dark brown to cola colored body with a moderate but fading head of smooth khaki foam. Some nice splotches of lacing cling to the glass. The aroma is fairly simple, showing a clean but uninspired base of cocoa and caramel, with a hint of coffee roast and just a faint wisp of cream that could pass as coconut. Flavors follow suit, resembling a caramel-based brown ale more than a porter, again showing notes of cocoa roast and a hint of cream. The palate lends itself to sessioning, as it is medium bodied at best, softly carbonated, and void of any annoying residual sugars. Not bad. Not great, by any means, but not bad. I put 3 consecutive pints away with ease.

3.3
markwise (5450) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 7, 2010
Draft at the FBG Fest 2010. Pours dark brown with a sligh khaki head. Nose is some roast, coconut, and chocolate. Flavor is similar with hints of coconut among the dark chocolate and roast. Light in body and barely detectable hops. Stark opposite of OBP.
